Synopsis & Review: While laid up in the hospital due to a matter of a broken leg, Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard frets with boredom and inaction. Knowing his penchant for faces, his actress friend Marta Hallard brings in a selection of portraits from the National Museum, portraits of victims and perpetrators in some of history’s greatest mysteries. Fascinated by one fifteenth-century portrait in particular, Inspector Grant finds himself investigating the past trying to match the alleged crime to the portrait of a man variously described by Grant’s acquaintances as a judge, a saint, an invalid: Richard III. click here to continue reading about The Daughter of Time
